"There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better: we find comfort somewhere." - Jane Austen, Mansfield Park

I have experienced a couple of professional disappointments recently. As Erik says, you must kiss a lot of toads. Since I drowned my sorrows in Toblerone yesterday, today I decided to get "back on the horse." The exercise bike felt good - or maybe it was just the Masterpiece Theatre Jane Austen Presents special I had taped. Here's to all of us, in all times, finding our place in the world.
